Roasted potato is an amazing side dish; it pairs well with just about anything, just like these mouthwatering garlic roasted potatoes.
Oven roasted potatoes recipe is my absolute favorite method of making and cooking potatoes, especially when I have red potatoes or yellow potatoes. I also love roasting baby potatoes in the oven as they are just a mouthful to eat.
Other than that, I like slicing my potatoes into hasselback potatoes so every slit of the potato is loaded with garlic, butter, herb and every bite is flavorful and delicious!
